The latest updated version of the official publication by the Croquet Association, Croquet Lawns, Their construction, Maintenance and Development by Jeff Perris, retired Director of Consultancy Services at The Sports Turf Research Institute, Bingley, is now available (again as a downloadable PDF) in the Information for Clubs section of the website.
This advice, recommendations and the legal requirements, should be the accepted standards for grant applications for the construction, improvement and maintenance of lawns, to the Development Committee of the Croquet Association.
This document is a valuable source of information and is intended for those involved in lawn management at clubs, as well as Regional Development Officers and contractors providing lawn services.
In particular, attention is drawn to sections 61 and 62 Pesticide Application and Legislation.
